Chanz Wiggins

Virginia Tech has a deep wide receiver core coming back next season in Ali Jennings, Stephen Gosnell, Da’Quan Felton, and Jaylin Lane for Drones and Bowen. It’s hard sometimes for a freshman to come in and make an impact in the ACC, but the Hokies have a good one in Wiggins.

A three-star from King George, he had over 800 receiving yards on 47 receptions and 15 touchdowns this season. One of the top wide receivers from Virginia, his speed and being a shifty receiver make him hard to cover.

As the season went along and Drones got more comfortable, he became more comfortable throwing the ball downfield which opened things up for the running game. Wiggins gives Bowen another option and downfield threat for 2024.

Again, it’s hard for a freshman to come into the ACC and make an immediate impact, but North Carolina State’s KC Concepcion did it this season and there’s no reason Wiggins can’t next season in Blacksburg.
